    The Microsoft 365 Core Design Team in Oslo is looking for a passionate and self-motivated Studio Manager to help shape the future of intelligence-driven experiences across the Microsoft ecosystem.

You will be able to spend time to learn and grow within the team and by accessing Microsoft’s vibrant global community of designers and researchers.

    • Contribute to creating a valued and respected design practice across our studio that supports inclusivity across the team.
    • Identify issues, barriers, gaps, and opportunities to improve design quality and processes across the entire team and to create cohesion and efficiencies among the various workgroups.
    • Help plan, schedule, and facilitate design sprints and working sessions that support strategic and creative thinking.

    • Excellent communication and networking skills. The working language is English.
    • Highly process-focused mindset with the ability to drive the roadmap with internal and external teams.
    • Able to be flexible in managing own time due to occasional late meetings.
